Publisher Comments:

High school students, two-year college students, and university students all need to know how to write a well-reasoned, coherent research paperand#8212;and for decades Kate Turabianand#8217;s Studentand#8217;s Guide to Writing College Papers has helped them to develop this critical skill. In the new fourth edition of Turabianand#8217;s popular guide, the team behind Chicagoand#8217;s widely respected The Craft of Research has reconceived and renewed this classic for todayand#8217;s generation. Designed for less advanced writers than Turabianand#8217;s Manual of Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Seventh Edition, Gregory G. Colomb and Joseph M. Williams here introduce students to the art of defining a topic, doing high-quality research with limited resources, and writing an engaging and solid college paper.

The Studentand#8217;s Guide is organized into three sections that lead students through the process of developing and revising a paper. Part 1, "Writing Your Paper," guides students through the research process with discussions of choosing and developing a topic, validating sources, planning arguments, writing drafts, avoiding plagiarism, and presenting evidence in tables and figures. Part 2, "Citing Sources," begins with a succinct introduction to why citation is important and includes sections on the three major styles students might encounter in their workand#8212;Chicago, MLA, and APAand#8212;all with full coverage of electronic source citation. Part 3, "Style," covers all matters of style important to writers of college papers, from punctuation to spelling to presenting titles, names, and numbers.

With the authority and clarity long associated with the name Turabian, the fourth edition of Studentand#8217;s Guide to Writing College Papers is both a solid introduction to the research process and a convenient handbook to the best practices of writing college papers. Classroom tested and filled with relevant examples and tips, this is a reference that students, and their teachers, will turn to again and again.
